I enjoyed this recipe. It was very easy. I oven baked the bacon. Used just enough bacon fat to very lightly coat the pan to saute the onions and celery. I used hot paprika for a little extra kick! Thanks!

I tried it as written and then did it again with the following changes: Remove bacon and bacon fat and replace with butter. Omit Paprika and Pepper. Add Celery salt 1 tsp Add 3/4 lb of haddock. Both versions worked well but I liked the second as a nice less creamy fish chowder with a twist. This recipe provides a nice solid base for a chowder and gave really nice results.
